SitCombat: The Final Battle

This is the end. Unless SitCombat reformulates around different shows, this will be the last regular edition of the feature. Archer’s season concluded tonight, leaving only one show left to evaluate. Less than a minimum of two programs quite obviously … Continue reading

SitCombat: 4/4/13

SitCombat’s days are numbered. This week is the first of a two-part season finale for Archer.  Once Archer’s finished, that removes the competition for The Office.  No competition, no SitCombat. I may still write a series finale piece on The … Continue reading

SitCombat: 3/14/13

I could begin this week by explaining that SitCombat is tardy thanks to my working late, or my preparing tax documents, or my being a little under the weather. True or not, though, nobody cares. This week marked the first … Continue reading

SitCombat: 2/14/13

As The Office continues its slow, painful march towards the grave, Archer has put together an excellent run of episodes to open its fourth season. Tonight, we get a doubly-long edition of The Office, about which I freely admit I … Continue reading

SitCombat: 2/7/13

30 Rock barely held on to defeat Archer last week, despite the fact that the former was airing its final episode.  With a major hurdle out of the way, Archer may begin to dominate SitCombat for the remainder of its … Continue reading

SitCombat: 1/31/13

I’m not going to pretend that The Office and Archer don’t face an uphill battle tonight. They face off against the series finale of 30 Rock, and it would be disingenuous to behave as if 30 Rock doesn’t have a … Continue reading

SitCombat: 1/24/13

Tick-tock.  30 Rock and The Office are close to wrapping for good, and, with them, so is SitCombat.  Both seem to be going out in style, as they produced high-quality episodes last week. Yet, neither of the venerable NBC franchises … Continue reading

SitCombat: 1/17/13

Seems like just yesterday I was writing SitCombat.  It was actually the day before yesterday, thanks to the previously explained hiatus.  30 Rock took an easy win over The Office, but there’s some added competition tonight, courtesy of FX and … Continue reading

SitCombat: 3/22/12

30 Rock has triumphed three consecutive weeks and isn’t making things any easier on the competition this time around.  The venerable NBC show has two all-new episodes tonight. Still, it’s far from a given that 30 Rock will make it four in … Continue reading

SitCombat: 3/15/12

I’m skipping the first night of the NCAA tournament to write a review of three sitcoms, so I’m going to dispense with the preamble this week. It’s only fair. I’ll just point out that 30 Rock is riding a two-week … Continue reading
